Rebuilding Nepal …many,many words
There are lessons learned, agendas, gender issues, principles, priorities and even creative moments but where is the action?
There are some important points raised in this collection of papers and we invite you to read through them carefully.
A particular paragraph leapt out …
“Architects have this weird thinking that they can impose any principle or design element without considering the context. This practice should be kept in check from the beginning. Use of local materials must be promoted as much as possible and foreign material should be introduced only when there is no other option left.” AIDMI Team
Let’s hope the action is not far behind the words, the people of Nepal desperately need better living conditions and a solid plan for rebuilding safer living environments
